For the second year in a row, Lending Club’s been named to CNBC’s Disruptor 50 list! We are humbled and honored to be ranked among “the country’s most ambitious and innovative companies” that CNBC believes are “changing the economy and overall business landscape.”

We will continue to strive to help borrowers and investors achieve their financial goals by creating a more cost-efficient and customer-friendly alternative to the traditional banking lending system, and are grateful for the trust hundreds of thousands of borrowers and investors have placed in us. We look forward to becoming more useful to more people as we continue to expand.
